the murder thursday of four american diplomates. including united states ambassador chris stevens in benghazi, libya, in what officials believe was a terrorist attack designed to coincide with the anniversary of september 11th. and joining us dan henninger, mary anastasia o'grady and, with the anti-american protests across the arab world this week, tell us about our standing in that part of the world, and the ferment in arabia? >> well, i think, paul, what's happening here is where essentially we came in when the arab spring began in egy egypt, tunisia and spread to other countries and the feeling at that time that came out the united states couldn't really support any of these movements in the arab spring because quote unquote, we don't know who these people are, which is to say that the united states, and including the state department, just was not that engaged with these countries at that time. now, when you think of how, to what extent egypt or libya since these transitions have been in the news, it's been basically not at all on their own, and still a piece with the obama administration
in cairo was not cleared by washington and does not reflect the views of the united states government. mitt romney also reacted to the attack west side this statement. i am outraged by the attacks on american diplomatic missions in libya and egypt and by the death of an american consulate worker in benghazi. romney held a press conference the next day. >> possibly the administration was wrong sympathizing of those instead of condemning their actions. it's never too early for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. the white house distanced the last night from the statement saying it wasn't cleared by washington. that reflects the mixed signals they are sending to the world. >> jon: president also faced the media on wednesday. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i've directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. >> jon: that is an extremely abbreviated time line. question for us on
the united states. you've got events elsewhere. foreign policy is supposed to be a big, big barack obama advantage in these campaigns? are these events changing that perception. >> i think they are and should be. one might ask, what is barack obama's foreign policy? the part of the problem is there's no sense that there's any sort of strategic idea. >> paul: i disagree with that. he would say to you, he would say, look, we're tough on terror, 0 we got bin laden, we've decimated the al-qaeda, and meanwhile, we've approached the islamic world in a different way, we've reached out, we've put on a better american face, not where like bush so my foreign policy is to engage the world and meanwhile, we're killing a really bad guy. >> tactical not-- >>, but barack obama's foreign policy is i'm barack obama. he came to cairo in june of 2009 and says, hi, i'm barack obama, i'm not george w. bush. we're going to have a nice conversation, i speak, you know, your language or wish i did, i grew up in indonesia, i have muslim relatives so therefore his analysis of the problem with the bush administrati
relationship with the film that muslims found it offensive. yes, i think the united states government should have been more alert that it took place on 9/11. yes, the government should have had better security, but is it the case the white house is going back to the original statements? i wonder. >> jon: maybe you are confused because the white house has. >> meanwhile, the obama administration has smeared one of our f
